Jimmy Iovine is a significant person in Apple, thanks to him the service Apple Music was born. However, there are rumors that he may leave his workplace at the company.
At first, rumors appeared on the Hits Daily Double website, but soon they wrote about it on Billboard. According to sources, Jimmy Iovine will be leaving Apple in August 2018. If he really leaves, then he will be paid an impressive amount for the shares that he acquired when he first joined Apple.
As a reminder, Iovine joined Apple in 2014 when the company acquired Beats Electronics and the Beats Music service. Since then, Jimmy has been in charge of the Apple Music service.
Even though the report says Iovine will leave the company in August, there are still some things that don't agree. First, he does not have a specific position in Apple, but his role in the company is obvious. If he leaves, it is not known whether they will look for a replacement. Secondly, it is not known what Jimmy will do after leaving Apple.
He played an important role in the company from the very beginning of cooperation, and there is no point in arguing that the service Apple Music exists precisely because of him. At the moment, the service has over 30 million users, and there are many exclusives thanks to Jimmy.
Let's hope Jimmy doesn't stop making music. I wonder what he'll do next. It is unlikely that this will be the creation of your own music service.
